Ski Cross

The World Cup ski Cross is being held at Cote 2000 this week.  We watched some of it today.  It appeared to be the individual time trials.  We were told that the Finals of the 4 abreast was today but it has been snowing most of the day and they've now been postponed until tomorrow, though we don't know the time.  The course starts from the top of the first chair lift to the bottom down the Ladies downhill course.  There must be about 15 high jumps with very sharp angled turns between them and then a steep run off at the end.  It's exciting to watch though there were few spectators  (it was snowing and cold).  We then skied home off piste (I managed a face plant in a ditch and lost both skis.)
